My Retrospective - Rewind 2019 - January 01, 2020


Whoever penned the phrase ‘time flies’ wasn’t kidding.  So, I looked it up online and it appears the earliest American appearance in print is 1710 in ‘Mayflower Descendant.’  The idea was first expressed by Virgil (70-19 B.C), who wrote in the ‘Aeneid’: Fugit inreparabile tempus’ (Time is flying never to return)…”.  A short and amusing anecdote I might add!

My big 2019 highlight was going Live on Google Search.  After the demise of Google Plus in April 2018, I wanted to replace it with something new and refreshing and Google Live made the cut.  Their toolbox is full of amazing apps to help you promote yourself (and your friends) and I like how Google shows my real time traffic on my SERPs. I'm totally satisfied with the choice I made.   

After doing a pre-2020 mental disk clean up, filing my 2019 folder under 'Fabulous' and reducing the degree of fragmentation in my brain by defragging for optimum performance, I'm on for 2020!  Catch me if you can!

QUOTES FROM
FITNESS THROUGH YOGA

He who meditates thus becomes radiant, endowed with good appetite, reaches the full length of life, lives gloriously, becomes great with offspring and great also with fame and shines with the holy effulgence.


The signs of perfection in yoga are the body becomes lean, the speech becomes eloquent, the inner sounds are heard distinctly, the eyes are clear and bright, the body is freed from all diseases, the seminal fluid is concentrated, the digestive fire is increased and the nadis are purified.
